The Windows 8 Consumer Preview came out to day and its clear MS just hasn't learned anything.
They are seriously trying to shove the new metro ui down peoples throats .
From a business stand point they wont upgrade to windows 8 and deal with this new ui.
From a home user stand point there just isn't any solid reason for a person to upgrade from windows 7
Nothing about windows 8 really stands out as a must have new feature
On a tablet the ui is slick and fast but on a pc is disjointed and confused.
At windows 8 core there nothing wrong and infact much good about it.
Starts faster then any OS and has no really hardware or driver issues to speak of.
But a faster boot isn't enough of a reason to upgrade and windows 7 is already rock solid and without any issues to speak of.
MS just doesn't seem to get the idea that a UI thats great on one device isn't necessarily a great idea on every device.
Of course we also got famous pricing scheme which frankly makes no sense at all.
There should be a business version and a home user version and thats it
A person shouldn't need to pay more for options like bit locker.
